AT&T now provides carrier billing for purchases through Samsung's Media Hub on select devices
Don’t you hate it when you’re forced to sign up for a new account in order to make purchases with specific apps? Like why can’t they just charge it to your monthly phone bill, right? Well, if you’re an AT&T customer that religiously uses Samsung’s Media Hub service, you’ll be happy to know that your prayers have been answered.

For those AT&T customers holding onto the Samsung Galaxy S III, Captivate, and Exhilarate, they now have the ability to charge Samsung Media Hub content purchases to their AT&T account. Of course, some people will surely find this ever-so useful, considering it takes the hassle of juggling multiple accounts for purchases. Therefore, if you’re buying certain TV episodes of your favorite show, or simply renting a new movie, you can now charge them all to your AT&T account.

Although it’s only reserved to those three smartphones at the moment, it’ll eventually become available to the Samsung Galaxy Note and Galaxy S II once they’re updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Still, it won’t be too long before they’re able to take advantage of this new offering – so there won’t be any hassle surrounding the process of purchasing content!

Exactly! This is probably a way to get people to use it more. Though I would've thought that the GS2/GS2 Skyrocket would've gotten the access before the Captivate, being those phones are much newer. Actually, I just got the official 4.0.4 update on my Skyrocket and it removed alot of pre-loaded apps (bloatware). Media Hub among them lol.
